Wonderful review of UK philosophy,
This review is from: New British Philosophy: The Interviews (Paperback)Bought this book over the bank holiday w/e and enjoyed it tremendously. Nice format with photo's and interviews which can be read independently or in sequence, with suggestions for further reading.
Help remedy the perception amongst philosophy undergrads that it is all logic, mind, language and Austin!
Baggini and Stangroom should be congratulated on their efforts to make philosophy relevant and exciting by this book (and their magazine - TPM) without dumbing such a subject down to a kind of new age self help.
Would recommend this book to anyone who has some knowledge of philosophy and particularly those who wish to study the subject as a postgrad. There is more to it than tweed suits and pipes!
